What is your role at Artisan? 

Senior Consultant


What is your proudest moment working at Artisan?


Oh gosh, after working here (with a slight break) since 2006, there are so many. I'm just so happy when I know someone has landed in their dream job. That's what I am here for.


What has been your weirdest/funnest moment at Artisan?

Again, over this time and with the crew I've worked with over this time, gosh, where to begin. Funniest moment.. and more recent one.. not sure I can say this - Artie being so in love with Charlie and (btw they are dogs) Artie always wanting to play with Charlie in a not PC office way.


What does a typical day look like for you?

No day is typical, however, they are filled with talking to our awesome candidates and clients, filling jobs, talking to new clients, reference checking , searching, interviewing.. the list goes on.


How many years have you been in the industry? 

Here we go.. I started as a cut, paste and bromide girl back in ... I don't even know when. First recruitment role was within a creative recruitment company in 1995. Yep, you do the maths!


Guess how many years we have combined?.. Watch our video.

How do you express your creativity? 

Funnily enough, I can't even draw a stick figure. I do know good design when I see it though.. well I hope so. I used to sing and be in musicals through school and after and it's something I really want to get back into. Singing is definitely my creative outlet.. although it's now done when I've probably had one drink too many.


What is your hidden talent?

Think I just answered that one.. it used to singing. Not sure I'm that talented at it now though..


You’re happiest when? 

I'm playing with and cuddling my dog Phantom.


What advices would you give a 12 year old you? 

Oh gosh, my advice. Don't be scared to take the plunge.. at anything. Just do it.


Where is your hometown? 

Grew up in Bondi. Doesn't get more Sydney than that.


Describe yourself in three words.

Fun, empathetic, loyal.
